I am always a little intimidated by the idea of having to set up a new piece of electronic equipment so I was really happy to know that this was really simple to use. Opening the packaging and installing the printer is super easy and requires literally one cord, the power cord. It has a sheet of paper with simple installation instructions with pictures for you to follow. Putting in the ink was really simple as the printer itself shows you exactly where which color of ink goes into what and it's a matter of taking the cap off and popping it in the right spot. I was worried for a couple seconds because I notice it comes with an installation DVD and I only have a laptop which does not have a DVD port. But then I discovered you can easily download the app for new printer installation. While using the app trying to find my printer I couldn't find the specific number on the printer so I manually hooked it up to my Wi-Fi via the little touch screen which was all so simple. After doing that it popped up on my app. I went through all the motions and print it out a test paper and everything works great. I love how this printer has so many different functions, you can make copies you can send and receive faxes if you set that up, you can print from your normal computer or even from a smart device via Wi-Fi. It's super simple and easy to use! Super great addition to any home office.
